Bacterial Diversity Based on a 16S rRNA Gene Amplicon Data Set from a High-Altitude Crater Lake and Glacial Samples of the Iztaccihuatl Volcanic Complex (Mexico). uri icon

abstract

  • Little is known about extremophilic microorganisms from glaciers found in subtropical regions, and to our knowledge, no reports have identified glacial bacteria in this ecosystem in Mexico. Herein, we report a 16S rRNA gene amplicon data set demonstrating bacterial diversity of three samples from the Iztaccihuatl volcanic complex (Mexico) with a total of 115,701 to 138,805 high-quality reads. The bacterial population was classified at the phylum level in all samples.
